Oneonta Pridefest 2022 Draws Big Gathering; Next Up Pride Prom
Usually, rainbows are a rarity and if seen, naturally make you smile and feel special but there was no shortage of rainbows in Neahwa Park on Saturday for the Otsego Pride Alliance Pridefest 2022.
It was a perfectly gorgeous day, adding Pridefest rainbows to the natural beauty of spring in the park. It's accurate to say, it was a feast for the eyes with all the color! Vendors, organizations with informational tables supporting LGBTQ+, and of course entertainment was enjoyed by a large crowd in the park.
On the heels of Pridefest 2022's success, the LGBTQ+ community can look forward to another upcoming event to enjoy. Bigger Dreams Productions is going to hold a "Pride Prom" event for the first time in Oneonta at Foothills Performing Arts Center, June 30 from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
